If energy and enthusiasm are among the essential traits of an entrepreneur, then the future should be bright for Yudelka Carrera, the owner of Events by Yudy, a full-service event planning and design company.
Yudelka immigrated to the United States from the Dominican Republic in the 90’s with a degree in Hospitality from UCE. As soon as she arrived in the United States, she was determined to pursue her passion for event planning, and received a degree in Hospitality from the New York Technological College. She then worked at a private catering company for 17 years, but decided to instead apply the knowledge she gained from school and work to run her own event planning company.
The Small Details
Prior to incorporating the business in April 2015, Yudelka sought countless learning opportunities to ensure that her venture would be successful and continue to grow while she grew her professional network. A certified event designer from the Event Leadership Institute in NYC, she is a member of the Young Event Planning Association and attends classes at the Small Business Solutions Center and the Business Outreach Center Network among other organizations. In 2016, Yudelka graduated from La Guardia Community College as dietitian, motivated to provide healthy menu choices to all her clients as well as those who are vegetarian and vegan.
